What can two or many brains do that one cannot?

In this meeting, we join researchers that study the cognitive capacities of single brains with those that study social interactions. By contrasting research on single brains with that on two or many interacting brains, the meeting shall highlight cognitive capabilities that emerge through social interactions.

A second and related aim of the meeting is to ask which brain mechanisms underlie social interactions, and how this knowledge can be used to better understand key ingredients of social and collective behavior.

The meeting will provide a multidisciplinary and multispecies approach in a relaxed setting to allow for rich discussions and fresh ways to look at these questions.
